A gunman opened fire inside a business in Bryan, Texas, killing one person and critically injuring four others, authorities said Thursday. The suspected gunman, an employee of the business, fled and was later arrested after a manhunt.
Four victims with gunshot wounds were transported to nearby hospitals in critical condition, Police Chief Eric Buske said in a news conference. One of the injured victims was identified as a trooper with the Department of Public Safety.
Buske said the motive of the shooting is currently unclear.
Police responded to calls at 2:30 p.m. local time Thursday and discovered the victims at the scene, officials said. In addition to the shooting victims, two others were injured at the scene: one suffered a “minor injury” and another suffered an asthma attack, officials said.
